    Abstract

    Development of oyster culture in Pulicat lake area - prospects and problems On some aspects of transportation of seed of pearl oyster Pinctada fucata (Gould ) On the growth of the pearl oyster, Pinctada fucata in commercial farm at Krusadai island Management of molluscan fisheries Studies on the settlement of barnacles at different depths in the pearl oyster farm at Tuticorin Observations on the bio-fouling in pearl oyster farm at Krusadai island, Gulf of Mannar On the large scale predation by the gastropod, (Cymatium cingulatum) on pearl oysters Aspects of the blood clam, Anadara granosa (Linnaeus) culture in Kakinada bay Settlement of spat of the backwater oyster, Crassostrea madrasensis (Preston) in Pulicat lake Spawning of the backwater oyster Crassostrea madrasensis (Preston) and settlement of its spat on the cultch materiel have been observed from April 1980 to November 1982 at Pulicat Lake. The intensity of spat settlement on the cultch was correlated with the abundance of veliger larvae in the plankton. Settlement of spat was found to a high during May and low during November when the salinity was high and low respectively in the lake. The salinity of the taka during the summer months seams to be favourable for the growth and settlement of the larvae.
